Stayed here about 2 weeks ago for a long weekend with 10 friends. We took up 5 of the 9 rooms, even though the other 4 were also being used the Sands still felt like our private getaway. Mercy was super nice and made sure we had everything we could possibly need. They apparently just renovated and the place looks... More

Great place to stay for a easy going, young couple. There is an area to fish at night and chairs and hammocks to relax in. The facility is realativily small, but absolutely accommodates a couple of two. There are 2-3 restaurants near by that were great to eat at. Cool place to stop at for a night while traveling down...

Loved every second we spent here. The management and staff were so kind and willing to go above and beyond to make our stay GREAT! Received the kind of treatment you would expect while staying with close friends. Great rates, clean well maintained rooms, EXCELLANT CUSTOMER SERVICE, and very friendly. We will be back!!

Lesson in 'don't judge a book by it's cover'!!! From the road, it doesn't look like much, but just wait!!! We were very pleasantly surprised by Sands. Immaculately clean room that smelled amazing. Great view, nice pool, hot tub, pier and view. Friendly, accommodating staff. Sorry that we had only booked one night, will definitely stay again!!! Highly recommended!!!

Overall nice room overlooking water. Management has bad attitude. I would not stay at this hotel again. The balcony obstructs view of water while sitting. Poor water pressure at times. Rooms neeD's a facelift.

This resort has a very Old Florida Feel. In a great location about midway between the mainland and Key West. Bring your boat and dock it at their marina and enjoy some fishing and snorkeling. Or just sit at the pool and enjoy the ocean breezes

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
An awesome, intimate escape right in the center of the Keys. All of our rooms have recently been refreshed from top to bottom. For a pet & people friendly tropical retreat...This is the spot. This is the kind of place Jimmy Buffett sings about. We are very Keysee and very clean! A sparkling pool and hot-tub with a view of the beach, boat launch and pier, await you. Our rooms and efficiencies can accomodate from 1 to 6 people very comfortably. ... more   less
